Model 1914 Pistol / Re: feeding issue
« on: November 26, 2019, 08:03:19 PM »
Hello. I shoot my 1914s a lot and I've  had better luck with Fiocchi round nose ammo than any other. I've  also never had an aftermarket magazine the worked consistently. Bite the bullet and buy an original mag off gunbroker or Ebay. Good luck and enjoy that fine little pistol.

I have had malfunctions with the PMC ammo also. I have never tried the Winchester.  Midway has the Fiocchi for $13.99 a box which is quite reasonable even with shipping added.
Mr. Mason can tell you more but from your serial number your gun was made around 1920.

Battis- Do you have the ramp front sight or the newer half moon?  Also for my old eyes a little dab of white nail polish on the front sight really helps. Glad your pistols working well.  If you're  interested in the age of your gun our experts here can date it for you.

FYI- I have 3 of these that I shoot quite a lot and I have great results with Fiocchi ammo. I have shot at least 300 rounds with it without a single malfunction.  I have experienced a few feeding problems with Remington and S & B. Be warned....these little guns are addictive!

Thank you very much!  I believe the magazine release spring is going behind the nub when I push it back in. I'll try to get it right.

Hello. Just bought my first 1914 last week. Serial number 181848. Can anyone date this closer than 1914 to 1923? I love the gun, great fun to shoot but I'm having a disassembly problem. I've watched the disassembly videos and read everything I could find to read and I think I'm doing it right. I lock the slide back, take the barrel out, pull the mag out and in, slowly let the slide forward till I can let the striker fall and then remove the mag. The slide will then move forward about 1/4 inch and comes to a dead stop against something. I can remove the grips, push the mag release spring back out of its notch and pull it down a half inch or so and then the slide will slide off. I"ve pulled the mag release spring all the way out and reinstalled it.  Same problem with next disassembly. I've read that the spring can be installed wrong. Can anyone help?  Thanks, Wayne!
